Thumbs down Government waging a war against disabled people

Quote:
Ministers’ social care and welfare reforms represent a deliberately prejudiced, vicious attack on a significant minority of the population. Cuts in social care funding have made a mockery of would-be progressive policies on personal budgets and direct payments. Cuts in day services and restrictions on access to freedom passes have marooned many disabled people behind their four walls. We have also seen disabled students’ allowances cut; a reduction in funding and greatly increased reporting of disability hate crime – including incidents against disabled children!
